Mission Style Dish Towels in Turned Taquete

Ravelry is responsible for a lot of inspiration, not just for knitters and crocheters, but especially for weavers. When I came across Mission Style Dish Towels in Turned Taquete (Handwoven Sept/Oct 2015), they immediately went into my mental queue as something I had to try. I finally got around to them in March-April of this year.

I wanted brighter towels than those in the article so I chose the yarns below, a mix of stash yarn and yarn I had to order for the project.

 This pattern has you use select a warp color to weave as weft for each towel. I did one towel each in Burnt Sienna, Lime Green, Yellow, Turquoise, and Purple. Not surprisingly, the turquoise was my favorite.

 I had some real problems with selvedges. I ended up cutting off the floating selvedges eventually and was much happier.  I also misread the instructions and ended up with squares on one side of the fabric and rectangles on the other. The pattern has both on each side. I still really like the towels!
